Unlike Fates, 3 Houses was released after Smash, though it’s not just advertising. It’s also a really good game and sold well, so think it’s earned the honor.Mario as well as Pokemon are the big top-tier franchises that no one should be surprised to see new character additions from. They are both pretty much the mascots of Nintendo. But Fire Emblem? Fire Emblem is no where near on the same level... Like not even remotely close. It is definitely a franchise worthy of a number of playable characters in Super Smash Bros... But eight characters? Come on, now.
Fire Emblem is getting massively undue representation in SSB and I don't know who is pulling this or why. I suspect that maybe it started with Super Smash Bros Melee's inclusion of FE characters really kicking off the franchise's success in the west and so now Nintendo has decided that Super Smash Bros is the optimal place to advertise new Fire Emblem entries, but even that seems rather oversimplistic and it is really beating a dead horse at this point.
